About Us

The firm, Cleveland & Cleveland, P.C. is composed of Charles Cleveland and Kenneth Lee Cleveland, who are father and son. We are engaged in the general practice of law and located at 2330 Highland Avenue, Birmingham, Alabama 35205; phone number 205-322-1811. We have an AV Martindale-Hubbel rating.

We offer general legal services to members of the public. We believe in the rule of law which should be applied evenly to everyone, regardless of race, color, creed, or station in life. We diligently represent our clients within the confines of the Rules of Professional Conduct as promulgated by the Alabama Supreme Court. If we accept the representation, we abide by the client's decisions as to the objectives of the representation. We use our knowledge and experience to determine the means to obtain those objectives. Representing a client does not constitute approval of either the client's views or activities.

Our litigation practice is divided between representation of plaintiffs and defendants. We represent either debtors or creditors in bankruptcy. We believe that this gives us a better balance than would be the case if we limited our practice to the representation of either plaintiffs or defendants, or to creditors or debtors. We also believe that trying lawsuits helps us in preparing legal documents. For example, having tried contract lawsuits helps us in the negotiation and preparation of contracts. Having tried will contests assists us in preparing wills.
